Abstract

Troublesome bleeding occurred in the posterior portion of the proximal anastomosis in an ascending aorta graft, being performed on a patient with acute type A dissection. The suture line was close to the left coronary ostium, and attempts at suturing and other maneuvers failed to control hemorrhage. Modified rapid deployment hemostat (MRDH) was successful in achieving hemostasis. MRDH is a novel hemostatic agent with invaluable use in troublesome bleeding occurring during heart surgery.
